Hello together,

since some weeks I've import a German produced VW T1 (1965) as ambulance from Sweden back to Germany. Trip about 1800km, was a cool advantage Smile

At the m-plate the color code is 527612, the 12 is the interior in aquariusblau (blue). But nobody can say what says the 5276? At the VW Certificate in the painting row is written "not investigatable".

Have you an idea? Best greetings from Germany...Björn

I am not an expert, but I tried to see what I could find from the information on this site.

The first digit 5 means this was a export bus (Not delivered to Germany).
The next two digits 27 are the model number. Model 27 means Ambulance.
The next digit 6 corresponds to the color Black. Special order
I am not sure what the last two digits 12 mean. The last two digits normally relate to the color of the upholstery but I could not find code 12. I'm guessing it is just for Ambulance interiors. Maybe do a search to look up M code plates for other ambulances to see if you see others with that code 12 in that spot.

Black is unusual for an ambulance as most were Ivory in color.

527 = special paint, bus, ambulance
612 = color
look somewhere that has original paint to determine the color, as it is not on the list. They would use multiple codes for the same color sometimes. Every ambulance I have ever seen was originally ivory, but it is a rare model, and a special model, so it is possible that it was another color originally.
